Photo Information - Descending Mont Blanc in Storm

Return to the March 2002 Newsletter page.

Alan Maurer, Kathy and Mark all went up to the Goûter Hut in hopes of climbing Mont Blanc. The weather had different ideas and this is what the descent looked like the following morning. The folks in this photo are not any of us, but a Scottish guide and his guest who descended with us. Downclimbing the broken rock from the Dome du Goûter was really not so difficult, but it went a bit slower than normal.
